CS:GO Powered

By using the CS:GO engine, we get a lot of very useful features for free!

New testing elements

P2CE brings back all of your favorite cut puzzle elements. Adhesion gel, Paint-Gun, Schrödinger's cube, you name it!

In addition, existing elements are enhanced with new features for mappers!

WebM Support

A modern game should use modern formats, so we stripped Portal 2's old BINK video support and made our own WebM video implementation!

This results in better quality and framerate as well as massive file size reduction. A win-win for everyone!

You can now also load custom videos in your map.

Running everywhere on 64bit

Portal 2: Community Edition is available natively on Windows and Linux with a Mac build coming soon! All 64bit.

(Hammer and other MFC tools are still Windows-only)

Planned features

Puzzlemaker rewrite

Since we do not have the sources for Portal 2's puzzlemaker, we will have to rewrite the entire thing from scratch. When we get to that, P2CE's puzzlemaker will be designed to be way more powerful and expandable than the original.

Scripting improvements

  • Additional languages like Python
  • Expanded API
  • C# hotloading

Workshop

P2CE's workshop will work similar to games like Garry's Mod or Left 4 Dead 2. Instead of uploading .bsp files with all additional assets bundled in, Portal 2: Community Edition workshop items are complete source-mods that can depend on each other and contain everything from maps, materials and models to scripting and particles.

A workshop item doesn't even have to be a map. You can upload your model and let mappers set a dependency to your item on their workshop page. All subscribed assets will be usable in the tools as well.
